In order to ensure that as many contestants as possible can safely prepare for and participate in this year's contest, the application deadline for the 2022 Lenya Competition preliminary auditions has been extended to Wednesday, 2 February. Competition guidelines otherwise remain unchanged. Contestants may still use pre-recorded accompaniment in their preliminary audition videos if COVID mandates. Adjustments to the dates and format of the semifinal round are also under consideration.
